Why I Keep Crystals On My Desk

What started as a home décor interest soon turned into a wellness practice. My crystal collection has expanded over the years, but there are a handful that I always keep by my side. My devotion comes in many forms; I have my favorite labradorite and ametrine rings sitting in a trinket tray, my favorite stones sitting by my laptop, a portable handful of stones in a protective velvet baggie in my purse, and a little angelite under my pillow for my dreams.

Work has been a place where I’ve benefitted from my crystal use the most. Believe it or not, they are desk essentials. Aside from the aesthetic perks, you can use crystals to your advantage in productivity, goal setting and so on. Plus, having a pleasant background while I work helps keep me motivated and peppy.

Crystals hold certain compositions that make them truly unique. They can be used to heal, actualize, manifest, meditate and more. However, they need to be meaningful to you, and you should learn how to use them to help you achieve milestones in your life. Size and shape don’t matter as much as what you want to accomplish with your crystals.

These are some great types to start with on your desk or in your home office.


A beautiful protector, amethyst can help in guarding your mind and your energy while also promoting positive transformation. It is also a major stress reliever.

Rose Quartz

Known as the stone of love, rose quartz is a great stone for promoting trusting and communicative relationships. It also dispels negative energy.


This is probably my most used stone because it has helped me in those moments when I’ve felt completely blocked. Selenite is a crystal of great power when it comes to clearing energy. It is a great stone to accompany meditation practices.

Clear Quartz

My mind wanders…a lot. It always has. When you’re seeking clarity and focus, you can usually find it with clear quartz. It is a great crystal with healing properties. It is also a stone that helps you feel more balanced while aiding in concentration.


Also known as “fool’s gold,” pyrite is a crystal tightly associated with money and general good fortune. It’s the perfect stone for abundance and manifestation practices.


The perfect stone for the entrepreneur’s desk. Citrine promotes abundance surrounded around wealth and can give you an ego boost, as well. It also promotes creativity and intuition.
